Volvo Group Rus — manufacturing of construction equipment, Volvo cabs and maintenance service
“I am convinced that under present conditions leadership at the Russian market is determined, first of all, by the development of the company industrial presence. And today we open one more page in production history of Volvo Group in Russia. New cab welding and painting plant is one more step in increasing local content of our production. By 2018 we plan to achieve 45% local content level. It is really a new height. Our cooperation between Volvo Group plants in Kaluga will enable us to be even closer to our clients and to offer products of the highest quality made in Kaluga”.
